The Hill's Prescription Diet k/d Kidney Care with Lamb Dry Dog Food is clinically proven nutrition that can help transform your pet’s life. As pets age, damage to the kidney tissues may occur, which affects the kidney’s role to function properly and filter toxins and waste from the blood. It is irreversible, and will lead to further loss of kidney function. This may also decrease their appetite, which could eventually result in the loss of muscle mass. And so the Hill’s nutritionists and veterinarians created this special diet, which supports your dog’s kidney function and helps to sustain muscle mass—in fact, the nutrition of k/d is clinically tested to improve and lengthen the quality of life.

Key Benefits
  • Protects vital kidney and heart function and supports the natural ability to build lean muscle daily.
  • Enhanced Appetite Trigger (E.A.T.) technology helps increase the appetite and food intake.
  • Made with controlled phosphorus and low sodium, plus therapeutic levels of l-carnitine and omega-3 fatty acids.
  • Also includes high levels of essential amino acids, which are the building blocks of protein.
  • Made in USA and clinically tested to improve and lengthen the quality of life.

This product requires a veterinary prescription. Simply provide your vet's information during checkout and we'll follow up to confirm the prescription, or email a copy of your prescription to vetdiet@chewy.com and we'll get your order out right away.

  • Dogs gobbled it up

    By on

    Apparently a lot of people have trouble getting their dogs to eat prescription dog food. Dog #1 loved it, and dog #2, who does not need prescription dog food, started stealing food from Dog #1. Which is a problem because it's way more expensive than her food!

  • Kidney disease

    By on

    My dog has kidney disease and even though the canned KD is the best for them she won't always eat it so this is great to have. My other dog even likes it better than her food

  • Lamb is my dog’s favorite food.

    By on

    Our dog is 12 years old and our Vet suggested using a Kidney Care diet dry food. I use the wet food but the dog eats more dry food so finding that lamb was a choice in the dry food too is terrific. He is a healthy dog and we hope to keep in good health.

  • Fast & fresh!

    By on

    I couldn’t believe how quickly this arrived! I was happy to find a k/d that wasn’t chicken-based. Smells much better than the chicken version & small, crunchy kibbles for a little old dog. Mix this with a couple tablespoons of the matching canned stew & he barks at me because I can’t put his food down for him fast enough! His energy is back and we can avoid medication for the time being just be feeding him the k/d. Prices on Chewy are much better than anywhere else I've found, and I was able to take a photo of his prescription & send it in immediately. Thanks Chewy!

  • A Miracle Worker

    By on

    Food is phenomenal! My golden retriever had a kidney scare and this food was our last effort before things had to be stepped up. Had him on the food for a month and his counts were amazing at his next blood test! I can tell he enjoys the food too. Seems more active and has more energy. At this point, it isn't about money, so go ahead and buy this food. You won't regret it!! (PS I have a 75 pound dog and he goes through right over a bag a month. So I would go ahead and buy two your first time so you can get your auto shipments at exactly a month.)

  • Much easier on the stomach

    By on

    This is the 2nd food I've tried for my Mastweiler to help with his kidney disease. I switched to this because corn is not the main ingredient. The kibble is a lot smaller too which is great. This food is definitely easier to digest and he eats it up. The Chewy price is much better than the vet. Can't say enough about the quick delivery. I ordered on a Friday afternoon, and delivery was on Saturday.

  • My dog hates this brand.

    By on

    Coco initially ate the food as I was transitioning her and mixed her old food with the new stuff. Once the transition period ended, she would have to be bribed into eating any of the Hill's. After a few days, she basically preferred to go hungry than get near this stuff. I purchased her Blue Buffalo again and am making tweaks to her diet to support her kidney health. I know she loves the lamb flavor as this is what she eats with Blue so it has to be the brand.

  • My dog actually eats it!

    Could never get her to eat dry dog food before! Always had to add something to it for her to eat regular dry dog food.

  • Fast shipping, product as ordered

    By on

    We can always rely on Chewy for fast shipping and receiving exactly what we ordered. My only disappointment is that the prescription food is very expensive and I wish the manufacturers would discount it for Chewy to pass along to consumers since anyone ordering it obviously has a dog with health issues.

  • Great product and the best customer service around!

    By on

    I cant say enough good things about Chewy.com. I had to order Hills prescription diet K/D for my dog who is in renal failure. This happened right after I had received a large bag of their regular dog food. They sent me the new food and told me to donate the other bag to a local animal shelter. Great company! Love Chewy.com!!!!!
